I currently have two server running Windows Server 2003 that I have started managing.
1. FileServ (File Server, DHCP, DNS, Active Directory)
2. PDC (DNS, Active Directory)
Recently I have started migrating servers into vmware using their p2v standalone converter, however I have read several articles that converting active directory servers is not supported. What is the best method of settings up two Windows Server 2008 r2 servers and migrating my 2003 active directory to the 2008 servers? I currently have two Windows Server 2008 VM's running:
I have found the following links on how to perform this migration, however there is not a lot of comments saying if the migration was successful or not. Here are the links:
Any direction in the best method to turn the two Server 2008 servers into my main AD, DNS servers would be a big help. Then I will simply P2V my fileserver after demoting and removing AD, DNS, and DHCP on my 2003 servers.
